How Rediculous Would This Be?

Switzerland’s Green party proposes anti-car legislation

From Leftlane:

Switzerland has never been the friendliest place on earth for cars, but new legislation could make it the downright meanest place for anything four-wheeled. Switzerland’s Green party has proposed a new regulation that would essentially ban all sports cars and SUVs.

Under the proposed law, any vehicle weighing over 4,820 pounds would be banned from use within the Swiss border. The proposal would also do away with any vehicle that emits more than 250 g/km of CO2, as well as any diesel vehicle that doesn’t have an onboard particle filter.
In the name of pedestrian safety, the plan would also ban any vehicles with front fascias deemed “dangerous to pedestrians,” according to Asphalte.
If the law is enacted, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, M BMWs, AMG Mercedes and S/RS Audis would suddenly become illegal in Switzerland. The only SUV likely to survive the new regulations would be the Lexus RX400h. Porsche would fare slightly better, but only the base model Boxster and Cayman would be allowed across the Swiss border.
However, all hope is not lost for the people of Switzerland. A vote on the subject is probably still a few years out and 90 percent of the initiatives put before the Swiss people have been shot down since 1848.

I don't think it would pass, but that would be ridiculous. There are so many nice cars in switzerland. I saw more Ferrari's and Lamborghini's there than anywhere else i've ever been.

Yeah I saw this report too. People are going overboard with all this global warming issue. Common sense would tell them there are not 100k Ferraris roaming the streets and the ones that do, do so rarely.
